Day 30 of the March SOLSC! #SOL20

Write. Share. Give.

Welcome to the thirtieth day of the 13th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge!

PRIZES

Tomorrow is the final day of the SOLSC of 2020, and the call for slices will contain several categories for prizes. Since we don’t want the Spirit of the Challenge Prize to be missed, it’s being shared both today and tomorrow. This is a big one.

If there is someone in the community who not only slices with the spirit of SOL, but also comments and supports others, the please nominate that person using this form. The winner of the Spirit of the Challenge Prize gets to choose a workshop at the Highlights Foundation, a truly priceless experience.
